Breast Cancer Risk Assessment
Many risk factors are associated with the development of breast cancer. These include the BRCA-1 and BRCA-2 genes, a prior breast cancer diagnosis, a family history of breast cancer, late first pregnancy, obesity and long-term hormone replacement therapy. The National Cancer Institute assessment tool used to determine an individuals’ risk for developing breast cancer takes into account a woman’s age, race, prior history of cancer and family history.
